It is also the day on Which the Great hymnographer, theologian and Founder of the Society of St Margaret JOHN MASON NEALE is commemorated as he died on the feast of the Transfiguration.

Neale was strongly anglo-catholic in his sympathies, and had to endure a good deal of opposition, including a fourteen years’ inhibition by his bishop. Neale translated the Eastern liturgies into English, and wrote a mystical and devotional commentary on the Psalms. However, he is best known as a hymn writer and, especially, translator, having enriched English hymnody with many ancient and mediaeval hymns translated from Latin and Greek. More than anyone else, he made English-speaking congregations aware of the centuries-old tradition of Latin, Greek, Russian, and Syrian hymns. The English Hymnal (1906) contains 63 of his translated hymns and six original hymns by Neale.

On the evening before his funeral. Neale was taken into the Convent Chapel, the orphans carrying his coffin and walking behind singing his translation of the Alleluiatic Sequence, to gregorian melodies.
